Q. I saw your response to  a TSP question about what happens to an account that is giving monthly payments (not annuity) when you die; payments stop and remaining funds go to the beneficiary. If your beneficiary (wife) also has a TSP account, are there any ways to transfer that to her TSP vs. lump payout if you die?
A. Yes. A spouse beneficiary will receive a beneficiary participant account in her name and she may continue to manage this account as her own for life.
